Day 220 – Make Applesauce


Taken with the Nikon D90 and the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8. Edited in Lightroom.

You have heard of the the old saying, “When life hands you lemons, make lemon aid.” Well, what do you do if life hands you apples? Think about it…no matter how badly you mess things up…at least you have applesauce. 🙂

Day 196 – Spring in Black and White

D196Taken with the Nikon D90 and Lensbaby. Edited in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro.

Yeah…I know…you were expecting a flower or something. I had a hard time trying to figure out what to photograph today. Whenever that happens, I just have to remember to look around me and try to see something in a new way. This photo is of a spring attached to a desk lamp, but with a little macro and a little lensbaby magic, it turns into something hopefully interesting.

Day 178 – Old Friends and New Ones

D178Taken with the Nikon D90 and the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8. Edited in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro.

This photo is of my friend Troy and his youngest child, Elizabeth. I’m spending a couple of days at my friends resort, Campus Grove at Albion, Idaho. It’s an old campus that has been converted into a family resort. (I’ll take photos tomorrow and post some photos of the old building.) I’m here with my family and 4 old friends and their families. It’s unbelievable to get together and catch up.

Day 171 – How To Train Your…Children

D171Taken with the Nikon D90 and the Nikon 50mm 1:1.8. Edited in Lightroom, and Silver Efex Pro.

Okay, so the title is misleading. I don’t know a thing about training Children. I used to have 2 theories…now I have 2 children and no theories. It’s hard to even get them to stand still for a photo. Don’t get me wrong; I have GREAT children, the best! So it’s not any failing on their part that I can’t pose them. I just haven’t figured out the secret yet.

On a related note, today we went and saw the new movie, How To Train Your Dragon. What a fun movie!
